Design for fun

Here you can see some precious paper gems that we developed and produced for our Clients over the last years. Either designed from scratch or based on our Paper Toys, these products always involve an immense research work – in disciplines as diverse as history, geography, architecture, sociology, mythology, biology and ecology – besides the pedagogical, functional, psychological and cultural inherent characteristics.

Thank You to everyone – in the NGOs, Museums, Monuments and Companies -, that inspired us to continue our work.

WWF Switzerland Donation Request – Turtle Paper Toy

We’re happy that the Turtle Paper Toy helped WWF Switzerland in their donation request for 2019.

Therefore an urgent request to you: Support today WWF’s measures for the protection of the oceans and all its inhabitants with your donation.

So that marine animals can continue to develop, they need your help. Two-thirds of the earth’s surface is water. But only 4.8% of them are under protection. To protect sea creatures, at least 30% of the oceans must be protected. But that requires consistent action from different partners like companies, authorities, industrial fishermen and you too!

The oceans are important to us humans – enormously important. They feed us with food, produce oxygen, regulate the climate and provide habitat for around one million species of animals. Only – what do we humans do with this unique source of life? We pollute them with plastic, oil or pesticides. And as if that was not bad enough, we overfished the waters even to collapse.

Orangutans Paper Toy for BOS Switzerland

To save the orangutan from extinction, PUKACA is donating 0,50 euro of its income derived from this Orangutans Paper Toy to Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Switzerland.

For 15 years, this non-profit organization has aimed to protect orangutans and their habitat — the rainforest of Indonesia. For that purpose, BOS Switzerland supports the programs of BOS Foundation in Borneo, Indonesia. BOS is running the largest primate rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.

Visit BOS Switzerland website

Since 1991, BOS has rescued more than 3000 orangutans and, since 2012, released 386 orangutans back into the wild after up to nine years of rehabilitation.

Furthermore, BOS is managing and protecting huge areas of rainforest. Together with volunteers, BOS reforests destroyed areas and engages in community development to generate alternative and sustainable sources of income, as well as to improve local health care and environmental education.

Orangutans are a so-called umbrella species. By protecting orangutans in their natural habitat, a whole plethora of other flora and fauna depending on the orangutan are also protected. Protecting their habitat is as important to humans as it is to wildlife.

Mount Olympus Paper Toy & Circus Maximus Paper Toy

In Ancient Greek religion and mythology, “Olympus” was the name of the home of the Twelve Olympian gods of the ancient Greek world. This was conceived of as a lofty mountaintop, and in all regions settled by Greek tribes, the highest local elevation tended to be so named, among the numerous peaks called Olumpos in antiquity are mountains in Mysia, Laconia, Lycia, Cyprus, Attica, Euboea, Ionia and Lesbos, and others. Thessalian Olympus is the highest peak in any territory with Greek settlement and came to be seen as the “Pan-Hellenic” representative of the mythological seat of the gods, by at least the 5th century BC, as Herodotus (1.56) identifies Olympus as the peak in Thessaly.

The Circus Maximus (Latin for greatest or largest circus; Italian: Circo Massimo) is an ancient Roman chariot-racing stadium and mass entertainment venue located in Rome, Italy. Situated in the valley between the Aventine and Palatine Hills, it was the first and largest stadium in ancient Rome and its later Empire. It measured 621 m (2,037 ft) in length and 118 m (387 ft) in width and could accommodate over 250,000 spectators. In its fully developed form, it became the model for circuses throughout the Roman Empire.

Pyramid Paper Toy & Sphinx Paper Toy

Numerous pyramids were built in ancient Egypt to adequately bury the deceased from the royal families of the ruling dynasties. Ruling pharaohs found their resting place together with their wives and children in one of the richly decorated burial chambers. The interior of the burial chamber was always very valuable. Grave goods of inestimable value, gold and precious stones were recovered by researchers and archaeologists.

The most famous sphinx is the Sphinx of Giza. Sphinxes are usually built as male lions with a human head. In their function they serve as guardian figures in front of temple entrances.

Caravel Paper Toy

The Caravel was a small, highly maneuverable sailing ship developed in the 15th century by the Portuguese to explore along the West African coast and into the Atlantic Ocean. The lateen sails gave it speed and the capacity for sailing windward (beating). Caravels were used by the Portuguese and Castilians (Spain) for the oceanic exploration voyages during the 15th and 16th centuries in the Age of Discovery.

D. Roberto Paper Finger Puppets

In Portugal glove puppets are called Robertos, and Roberto is also the star of most stories.
Until the beginning of the 20th century it was usual to see these colourful puppet theatres on the streets, in village squares, and in gardens and beaches throughout the country. Young and old people, children and adults would listen to the first treble sound of the reef and enjoy the comic stories those puppets played with skilful pace.
